Brackenhurst College Courses Open Day Digital Guide

We’re delighted that you are planning to attend our Open Day on Saturday 16 October and Sunday 17 October. Both events will run from 10 am to 4 pm.

There’s plenty to see and do at our Brackenhurst Campus and this digital guide will help you get the most out of your visit. Look out for our friendly staff and students on the day – they’ll be wearing pink T-shirts and will be on-hand to answer your questions.

Schedule of talks and tours

Use this map and the schedule of talks, tours and other activities available to plan your day and find where you need to be.

Please note that you only need to attend your subject talk once. We repeat the same talks to give everyone a chance to attend.

Things to do while you're here

Deciding where to start at an Open Day can be an overwhelming decision. Your visit can be as long or short as you like, but please note that some activities are only offered at set times on the day. Below are our suggestions as to how you might want to spend your day, the order that you complete these activities is flexible and dependent on the time you arrive.


We are still finalising the schedule and it will be available here soon. There are lots of activities available throughout the day which you can access at any point without booking. These include:

  • Visit the college courses hub to find out more about your course, how to apply, travelling to Brackenhurst and more
  • Attend a subject talk
  • Take a tour of our fantastic subject facilities
  • Take a student-led campus tour

Travelling to our Brackenhurst Campus

Nestled in the middle of the beautiful countryside roughly 14 miles north-east of Nottingham city centre, travelling to our Brackenhurst Campus couldn't be easier.

Travelling from Brackenhurst Campus to Nottingham City Centre

The purple ‘Path Finder’ number 26 bus will be running every 30 minutes on Saturday and every hour on Sunday to the City Centre. The bus stop is just outside the main entrance to campus and the stop for Nottingham City Centre is on King Street. Please note that this bus service is not free, a single ticket costs £4.50 and a return (all day) ticket is £6.50.

Staying safe on campus

The safety of our visitors, staff and students is our top priority. This event has been planned and will be conducted in line with the University’s COVID-19 measures. These will be continuously reviewed in the lead up to the Open Day and if required we may have to amend our schedule of activities to remain compliant with Government guidance. Should we need to do this we will notify all visitors in advance. You can help us by also following these guidelines:

  • Please conduct a Lateral Flow Test before travelling to campus.
  • Please wear a face mask in crowded spaces.
  • Please do not travel to campus if you feel unwell or have any symptoms.

We will ensure that hand sanitiser stations are available at multiple points on each of our campuses and encourage all guests to utilise them.
